Chassis: 83G/02
The second 83G built, this chassis made a victories debut at the Grand Prix of Miami with Al Holbert behind the wheel. It then passed to Pepe Romero, who campaigned the car at Sebring and later also started on pole for the Road Atlanta 500 km race. For the remainder of the 1983 season, it was campaigned by the Leon Brothers team but with little luck. It continued to be raced by several entrants during the 1984 season. Among the drivers that year was Emerson Fittipaldi, who qualified the car on pole position for the Miami 3 Hours but failed to reach the finish in the race. It did finish second at Sebring a month later, this time in the hands of Randy Lanier, Marty Hinze and Bill Whittington. Whittington won the Sears Point sprint race in August and then his brother Dale partnered with Lanier to win the Watkins Glen 500 km IMSA race. Retired from active duty at the end of the 1984 season, it was eventually restored to its #57 Blue Thunder Racing Team colours as used by the Whittington brothers. In 2018, it was acquired at auction by John Campion and he had the car re-painted to the #84 Spirit of Miami colours used when Fittipaldi raced the car. From Campion's estate, chassis 83G/02 was consigned a few years later to the 2021 RM Sotheby's Amelia Island sale.
